I am officially in love with my new sauna!
All week, I was excited about bringing home my latest anti cellulite gizmo. This is the biggest and most expensive treatment I’ve tried yet, but lucky for me I got a great deal on it from a friend who is moving and decided not to take it with her.
I couldn’t wait to take this baby for a spin. My first sauna session was on Saturday. I stayed in the sauna for about 25 minutes. I put on some island music, grabbed a bridal magazine, and sipped lemon water. Life is good.
I don’t know much about saunas yet, so I set the temp at 104 which is the factory default. This temperature wasn’t nearly hot enough for me so I ended up increasing it to 110. I worked up a good sweat on my upper body, including my arms, but my legs barely broke a glisten.
I’ve taken two sauna since then, and my legs did not sweat much in either. In my second sauna, my feet started to sweat towards the end (gross, I know!) but my legs still only showed a slight glisten.
In the third sauna, I turned the temperature up to 125 and dry brushed immediately beforehand to increase my lymphatic circulation. My lower legs sweated more, but not my upper legs. Interesting, right?
I am eagerly looking forward to receiving my sauna book in the mail. In the meantime, does anyone have any sauna wisdom to share with a newbie like myself? Is it normal for the legs not to sweat in the beginning? What should I expect as I continue with the sessions?
Thanks for stopping by The Cellulite Investigation. Things are a little quite around here at the moment. I’m taking an extended break as I get married and settle into married life and a new home. Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon!
